City to consider three traffic circles
Online Staff Report
The City of Rockford has announced plans to explore installing traffic circles at a few locations within the city.
Beginning Monday, June 16, the city will begin a study of a possible traffic circle installation at the following intersections:
• South Second and Oak streets;
• South Second and Grove streets; and
• Crosby Street and North Highland Avenue.
Traffic control drums will be set up in the middle of each intersection to simulate a traffic circle. Traffic circles are traffic-calming devices used to slow traffic in residential areas. Motorists approaching these intersections are advised to slow down, be cautious of the new traffic control, and continue to the right of the drums. Vehicles on Oak Street, Grove Street and North Highland Avenue will still be required to stop before entering the intersection. The study is expected to last three months.
